My children have been going to Dr. Adams for more than 22 years and we would not ever see another provider. I continually tell her that I need her to continue practicing until my youngest has graduated high school because I trust her implicitly with the care of my children. She is the best pediatrician I could hope for when it comes to the well being of my kids.

Dr. Adams and Dekah have been so amazing handling every little thing that comes our way when it comes to my son. They listen to us, they care, and most importantly, they are so attentive in getting our son to feel better when he is sick. So thankful for them.

Dr. Adams is very kind. She listens well and addresses my concerns. She offers medical advice and treatment options and allow my input to determine an overall plan for my sons treatment.

I love Forsyth Peds they have taken care of all my children. My oldest is 32 who was a patient of Dr. Earnhart, and my later 2 is being taken care of by Dr. Gardner who is like family to us. We love him and his nurses.

Melanie Adams, MD, has always had a passion for working with children. From babysitting to being a camp counselor, once in medical school, Dr. Adams knew that she wanted to service children and their families as her specialty. For more than two decades, Dr. Adams has served children and watched many of them grow from infancy to young adults. She values this ability to get to know her patients and their families. These relationships and the continuity of care are the most rewarding aspects of pediatrics for Dr. Adams. When she is not working, Dr. Adams enjoys staying active and spends much of her spare time swimming and biking as training for triathlons. She also enjoys spending time with her family and dog and being involved at her church.
